News & Events

 

FAITH, HOPE, LOVE AND MERCY: sales of Father Stan’s book to date have enabled me to send a cheque for £500.00 to the David Young Charity.  This charity gives grants to those members of the SVP who have found themselves in difficulty and need. You can still buy Fr Stan’s books from the Repository Shop in the Hall after mass when open. See this Newsletter for open announcements.

MESSAGE FROM FR. FRANCIS: As well as being a priest of our Diocese, Fr Pius belongs to the Sion Catholic Community for Evangelism. From September he will work part-time in our cluster of parishes and spend the rest of his time leading parish missions along with the Sion Community. Bishop Peter has therefore appointed a further full-time priest, Fr Brendan Seery, to join us in September. We will sort out what all this means in practice as time goes by, but in the meantime it is great to be able to welcome a new priest to our team.                                                                             

OPEN HOUSE: There will no OPEN HOUSE during August. Begins again in September.

JUNIOR LITURGY:  We shall be having a break over the summer holidays and will resume in September.
